You can borrow books from Illingworth Library at Sheffield Children's Hospital.  It has its own lending system which is separate from the University of Sheffield.  This means items that appear "In stock" at the Children's Hospital Library on StarPlus may actually be out on loan. It is always worth searching on the Children's Hospital catalogue to make sure the item is in stock.  If you would like to consult or borrow an item, you will need to contact the Illingworth Library in the Children's Hospital. Although their items appear on StarPlus, these items cannot be requested by University of Sheffield library staff or customers. 

Access between 8.30am and 5.00pm is via the entrance situated on Damer Street (close to the junction with Western Bank and opposite the side of Starbucks), see map.

Access between 5.00pm and 7.00pm is via the Accident and Emergency entrance on Western Bank. Please ask at reception for directions.
